It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Why are you even asking this? If you did create some kind of loop, did you really think the admin wouldn't notice something funky in the mail queue? – Bart Silverstrim Oct 17 '10 at 15:33

That depends entirely on the mailing list software. Mailman puts in a header to detect loops, but if the other mailing list is not Mailman, it may strip it off and prevent it from working.
